Earth/Art: Monica Taburchi documentary

How can art help us to understand the huge problem of climate change? A new documentary broadcast on Rai 5 on November 29, 2019, directed by Monica Taburchi, tells us how.

Produced by Rai Cultura, Earth/Art is a film that highlights how contemporary artists have managed to address the issue of pollution and climate change.
Through a series of original interviews, artists of different generations talk about their own relationship with this theme. Among them are masters such as Michelangelo Pistoletto, Christo, and Olafur Eliasson, but also young muralists like Pejac and Iena Cruz, contemporary designers such as Alper Dostal, Studio Roosegaarde, and Accurat, and younger Italian artists such as Eugenio Tibaldi and Elena Mazzi.

The conference was dedicated to artistic, social, and scientific disciplines, with topics meant to inspire dialogue and new ideas for all. This year’s theme was “Transitions”: a look at the historic period of change we are observing today, which we must embrace rather than resist. The objective is to forge a path to greater awareness in how we confront changes and obstacles, while keeping humanity as our priority. We are called upon to examine how we handle transitions in the social realm with special attention to its most crucial component: the individual.
